Stocking Stuffers

Three Holiday Toys for the Stocking

By: Eric Cohen

Stockings hung by the chimney with care? Need some inspiration for what to put in them? Here's a couple of ideas for you.

ZeeBeez from Zing Toys are neat fun, the kids can take them right out and play with them Christmas morning. Turn them inside out, and then drop them and watch them bounce up to 6 feet high. We took one for a spin in the office and the consensus was "Wow, that's pretty cool".

Floppets are adorable charms that kids can attach to flipflops, glasses, backpacks and more. Or they can be worn as rings or other jewelry. There are dozens to choose from so kids can collect, trade and decorate.

Talking Friends are new plush toys based on the popular app. Not familiar with it? Download it let your kids play with it, they'll have a blast (and then really love the plush in their stocking). Talking Tom from Cuddle Barn is cute and makes sounds from the App when you squeeze his belly.

We had fun testing these toys and appreciate the companies sending them to us. Add one or all three to your kids stockings for some Holiday fun this year.
